Another blow for Trump as Hillary Clinton has picked a historic first ever presidential endorsement from the US Hispanic Chamber Of Commerce.
Javier Palomarez, President & CEO, United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce delivered the endorsement:
After careful consideration, consultation, and deliberation, the USHCC has decided to move forward with the endorsement of Secretary Hillary Clinton for the Presidency of the United States.
Such an endorsement is unprecedented for our organization … as such, the decision was not taken lightly. In an election season unlike any other, our ability to remain nonpartisan was tested as never before. We are at a momentous time in our nation’s history. Never before have the choices facing America been as stark as they are today.
Two vastly divergent visions for the future are presented by the front-runners of the leading parties in our country. On one side, we have seen a candidate who has openly mocked and marginalized women, Hispanics, veterans, African-Americans, Muslims and the disabled, while turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the dangerous undercurrents of antisemitism and homophobia emanating from his campaign and his followers.
In Trump we find a candidate who stokes fear at home and invokes foreign authoritarians as his role models for strong leadership. We cannot stand silently in the face of a campaign that is intent on dividing our country by pointing fingers and assigning blame for America’s problems to entire creeds or ethnic groups. This is not our way … and it isn’t the American Way.
The Trump campaign is the antithesis of American values, and we must not allow the candidate who espouses these dangerous ideals to reach the highest elected office in the land.
We have the opportunity this November to make history and choose a different path forward, setting a course for America that is based on inclusiveness, acceptance, compassion, and unity. There is only one candidate in this race who is such as standard bearer — for optimism, openness, opportunity and dignity, not fear and divisiveness. That candidate is Hillary Clinton.
The US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) has never endorsed a candidate in a presidential election, but they felt that this election is important for the future direction of the country that they endorsed Hillary Clinton.
One can see the potential coalition growing that could power Hillary Clinton to the White House. Hispanic voters, African-American voters, young voters, and women are all coming together to make sure that Trump does not win.
The pieces are falling into place for Hillary Clinton.
Organizations that have never spoken out before are taking a stand. Trump has unified much of the country around the common cause of making Hillary Clinton the next President Of The United States.
